Abul Gheit says Egypt supports STL


During a speech at the U.N. General Assembly, Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Abul Gheit expressed Cairo’s full support for Lebanese state institutions against parties seeking to keep Lebanon a battlefield.

Abul Gheit also expressed his country’s support for parties that are backing Lebanon’s state institutions and slammed local and foreign sides that “still want to keep this country a battlefield of political and security and sometimes military confrontation for regional and international parties.” This was a possible reference to Hezbollah which is backed by Iran and Syria

Abul Gheit stressed Egypt’s full support for the Special Tribunal for Lebanon and said Cairo was awaiting its decisions.

Knowing the truth behind the killers of ex-Premier Rafik Hariri and knowing who carried out the other political assassinations in Lebanon “should end without return the bad epoch in its history.”
